This virus, man. It’s really taking its toll on everyone. I don’t have any words of wisdom about dealing with it. But if you’re looking for ideas of how to spend your time indoors, check out my social distancing survival packs.

  • Jessica Lustig wrote a beautiful piece for the New York Times about caring for her husband, who has been diagnosed with COVID-19. The last lines just broke me, “The few people walking past us on the sidewalk don’t know that we are visitors from the future. A vision, a premonition, a walking visitation. This will be them: Either T, in the mask, or — if they’re lucky — me, tending to him.”
  • Online shopping has provided a much-needed escape this week. I’m loving all the things I’ve found on Etsy including the camel print at the top of this post, this beautiful rug, and these amazing shoes.
  • McSweeney’s satirical takes on this virus continue to rock. My favorite this week was TEACHERS ANSWER THE UNSPOKEN QUESTIONS OF HOMESCHOOLING PARENTS – “That’s correct. As you are no doubt realizing, there is no correlation between the amount of time you spend planning a lesson and the amount of interest your kids show in it.”
  • I’ve been really into poetry this week. My attention span seems to run in short snippets, before I flit off again to check the news. Here’s a poem that has become a favorite – it’s the perfect mix of subversive, feminist, and angry.
